When a child goes missing, two mothers’ lives collide in a shocking way in this suspenseful novel from the bestselling author of The Marriage Lie.
It’s every parent’s worst nightmare: the call that comes in the middle of the night. When Kat Jenkins awakens to the police on her doorstep, her greatest fear is realized. Her nine-year-old son, Ethan, is missing—vanished from the cabin where he’d been on an overnight class trip. Shocked and distraught, Kat rushes to the campground, but she’s too late; the authorities have returned from their search empty-handed after losing Ethan’s trail in the mountain forest.
Another mother from the school, Stef Huntington, seems like she has it all: money, prominence in the community, a popular son and a loving husband. She hardly knows Kat, except for the vicious gossip that swirls around Kat’s traumatic past. But as the police investigation unfolds, Ethan’s disappearance has earth-shattering consequences for Stef, as her path crosses with Kat. As the two mothers race against the clock, their desperate search for answers reveals how the greatest dangers lie behind the everyday smiles of those they trust the most.
We were hooked on Kimberly Belle books after we read “The Marriage Lie” (which was amazing)! So when “Three Days Missing” became available, we jumped on the opportunity to read it before publication day!!!
So, wow! This was a fast paced story chock full of complex characters and crazy plot twists. Whenever we read stories involving missing children, our heart rate increases and we sweat through the pages to see how it ends.
We loved how Kimberly Belle creates a situation that any parent can relate to… an overnight field trip and a seemingly caring teacher. What can go wrong?
Well, as the story unravels you’ll begin to understand who has Ethan, why, and what needs to be done to get him back! Trust no one, don’t bother guessing, and DON’T underestimate any character! Lovers of thrillers will love the suspense and pace of this excellent book!
